OUR STORY - Wine can be a forgotten craft at weddings, we are going to change that! 


Two years ago, we set out to create an elevated wine program that was specific to you, your event and your food by utilizing small production wines.  Small production wines are of the highest quality, they come from exclusive vineyards that do not mass produce.  This takes a tremendous amount of work and is a constant job to keep yourself supplied.

Cale Carmichael

We spoke with many sommeliers around the Midwest looking for the right blend of deep knowledge but also logistics ability.  Believe it or not the wine professional that was heads above everyone else was Cale Carmichael located right in Saint Joseph.  


Cale had just opened the “Lighthouse Wine Shop” three miles from our venue.  We just stopped in for a bottle and talked for the next  three hours.  We knew when we left, we had found someone special. 


When Cale set up a wine tasting to pick some of our house wines, he was able to have suppliers provide almost 100 bottles.  It’s this above and beyond way of doing things that makes him the perfect partner and who we call our in-house sommelier.

Why do I love invitations?

I love working with a couple to create an invitation that is inspired by their personal love story.

Place Cards

They are kind of a guilty pleasure for me!

Calligraphy is how I got started so it will always have a special place in my heart and, I mean, who doesn’t love to see their name written out at their table setting?

Hi! I'm Emily,

I started my business mid November 2020 for fun, doing ornaments and decided to branch out in January 2021.  I'm so happy I did because I LOVE being a part of your special day!

I have been married to my husband, Kent for 7 years and we have a 1.5 year old daughter who keeps me extra busy! I used not work in insurance but once she was born, I became a SAHM.

We love (d) not travel and have been fortunate enough to travel all over the world, but Croatia especially holds a special place in our hearts!

Thanks for following along so far in this amazing venture.  I'd love to work with you on your upcoming event or wedding. Let's chat!
